Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

      The link doesn't work. Item won't show up because you already bought it.

      You're taking a big risk, buying a saddle after only seeing a picture of it. Hopefully the cheap price doesn't mean a poor quality saddle.

      Peace Out!

        the link does work.

        i dont have one, but they look decent. Argentinian saddles are notorious for being of poor quality, so I can't really say.

        But for the price, it looks balanced, so its probably not a bad deal even if the leather is kinda icky.

          I've had my eye on this company for a few weeks now. A new trend is for foreign horse tack makers to enter the US market through Ebay. The ebay company does import exports (rugs and antiques) and also sells items from this saddler. I think that argentine saddles have increased in quality over the years, now the indian saddles are at the bottom of the rung.

          This company has excellent looking leather, good marketing, and lots and lots of really good quality pictures. It appears to come directly from the saddle maker, so you may have language problems if you need to talk to the saddler himself, but I like that it isn't first imported, marked up, then sold.

          I believe that after this company is established (if their products live up to the pictures and their claim) their prices will go up.

          Please update this thread when your saddle arrives, as I've been oggling their girths but am not as gutsy as you.

            Ok, my "research" has told me that this ebayer has at least 2 saddlers under its belt.
            The "st. lourdes saddlery" which claims to be run by the original creator of the pessoa, and the "argentinia saddle company", they also sell "rossi caruso" saddles.

              yes, please tell us if you enjoy this saddle, let us know the quality of the leather!
              does it break in easily, and how was the fit for you and your horse?
              I have been eying this company as well for quite awhile, I need a good schooling saddle and sometimes I wanted to take the plunge, but got cold feet - good luck!

                    Yeah you know, I was thinking about their girths too. I have been a walking zombie for the past 2 weeks after this bit with Erin. Can someone tell me what size I need? They have it all in cm for measure. Devon has a 44 girth right now, that seems to be ok. I got it off eBay as well. It is a gel one, but I can't clip draw reins to it unless I rig something up. Girth has no "Dee" rings.

                      If you need to attatch draw reins, buy a leather "loop" at your tack store. They have dee rings attached to them. Here's a picture off the Dover website:
                      Detachable Girth Loop

                      To use it, attach one side of the girth to the saddle as you normally would. Come around to the other side of the horse and grab the girth under the horse's belly as you normally would. Before putting the girth onto the billets, slide the leather "loop" onto the girth and finish tacking up. Make sure the loop is between the front legs where it would normally be

                        I have something sim. to that. I keep forgettting about it when I untack, and the other day I found it hanging on Devon door. I forgot..again...about it and luckily someone picked it up and knew it was mine, and returned it.

                        I was wondering about the girths now, along with the saddle. Anyone?

                                  I've eyed them too . . . but I'm reluctant to buy a saddle that isn't flocked with wool. These do not appear to be.

                                    I can hardly wait myself. I am probably just going to orde a girth from Dover for now. I had bid on 3 different ones, but have already been out-bid.

                                    I went to their site as well, and I am thinking I may just order direct. I did do a little research. Their prices have been increasing due to popularity. I checked there feedback and spoke to a number of people that bought their bridles and girths, and leathers. Everyone loves them. I spoke to a woman that bought a saddle a month ago, but has only ridden in it 8 times. She really didn't say much about it. Or maybe I should say nothing NEg. about it.

                                      Update:

                                      There was a hold up in customs. For some reason customs held up MY saddle, and MY saddle only even though there were 10 others EXACTLY like mine being sent. You'd think with how bad my luck is, this wouldn't surprise me so much.

                                      They are going to send me another tracking number for my saddle, but they say I should still get it the same day. We'll see
